Library and Reading Progam in Urban of Khon Kaen

DekTai Mini Library

TWA established the first Children and Family Library in 2000 as a pioneering model and demonstration of the the replication of such facilities throughout the region. Six years later it was moved to a permanent sizable location on the outskirt of Khon Kaen, and serves as both an openly accessible public facility and as a demonstration/training resource. It started with 200 books, but by 2005 it housed about 5,000 books with about 400 memberships of children and parents. 60% are picture books for young children, and the rest are books for older children and youth, including reference books for parents.

This model was then presented to municipalities and local communities copy. This library also serves as a laboratory for developing the most suitable model and activities before introducing them in the training. This concept has contributed to assisting the city of Khon Kaen in establishing Municipal Children’s Libraries. Ten of the other libraries were built by TWA themselves while they advised the communities during the construction and set-up of the other ones.
